Comic-Con 2014: Ben Affleck's New Batman Cape & Cowl on Display

July 24, 2014

Zack Snyder's Batman

"He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector." Taking place this week is Comic-Con 2014, but it's also the 75th Anniversary of Batman, the comic book superhero created by Bob Kane. In honor of the anniversary, DC's booth is filled with Batman everything, including costumes, capes and masks from every single Batman movie (photos in our showfloor gallery). While many fans are scrambling for a look at the older costumes, few seem to realize the new "Batfleck" costume is there, too. They're showing off Ben Affleck's Batman cape & cowl from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (seen before) at the Con and we have photos.

Here's our two full shots of the new cape and cowl on display at the DC booth with the label "Zack Snyder":

No other info or details were revealed about this Batman, just the name "Zack Snyder" beneath the display.

Update! We have another photo of Affleck as Batman that was revealed at Comic-Con. Word from twitter is that this new photo comes directly from the DC booth, where it's on display as part of his 75th Anniversary.

We'll keep an eye out for any other updates related to Batman (or Superman) revealed at Comic-Con 2014.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is directed by Zack Snyder (Man of Steel, 300) and written by Chris Terrio (Argo) with a story from David S. Goyer (of The Dark Knight trilogy). Production is already underway around the world, and the sequel will be shot back-to-back with Justice League. Henry Cavill is returning as Superman along with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane from Man of Steel and Jesse Eisenberg playing iconic villain Lex Luthor. In addition, Ben Affleck is joining the film as the new Batman, along with Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Warner Bros will release the sequel on May 6th, 2016.

    "It needs something, but what?" "I've got it! We'll add a furrowed brow!" "Yeah, criminals will realize he's angry with them."

      More like "If you smell what the batman is cooking!"

    Awww Benny Boy is gonna look so sexy in this...and scary...criminals will cringe in fear at him in that suit...I know I am.
  • Bl00dwerK
    Those cowls always look so rubbery. Do they have to, for some reason?
  • Steven
    Still feels like a step backwards after Nolan's more realistic suit IMO.
    • Xerxexx
      He is a comic book character. The Nolanverse bat suit was good...but for this movie imo the suit fits better.
      • Steven
        I'm aware he's a comic book character. I'm not saying they should have stuck with suit in TDKR, but had something in between that still allowed him to move his head (of course this might be a possibilty, but is doesn't look like it).
        • Xerxexx
          Hopefully head turning will fingers crossed be featured
  • n_n
    "Any ideas for the new suit" "How about if we go back to having a suit with no neck movement?" "Yeah, that would be cool" "Done!"
  • Xerxexx
    I love it.
    Enough room for the chin of Affleck.

    But... why is the mask angry?
    • Xerxexx
      It looks better with a furrowed brow, imo. Bats is taking on Gothams worst, his mask needs to convey a certain emotion...the emotion is fury...Bats is furious at the fact that the bad has beaten the good into submission. So he's an angry bat outta of hell.
  • Xerxexx
    Are the eyes solid white?
    • redtie
      The Bat now paints his eye lids whites, so his enemies never see him blink!
      • Xerxexx
        Well the animated series always featured solid white eyes.
        • redtie
          I attributed that to the actual mask, Spiderman style, not bats actually painting his eyes white.
